Ofcourse this isnt Egypt ! :P but i do agree , i would like wider bottoms to buildings here but i guess if they plan to build 10 supertalls in a block , then they will have to go with tall and sleek

They went up because the plot is near the sea and the owners of the plot are allowed to build to whatever height they want. The land where this tower is supposed to be built could cost 3 times more than across the road, simply because here you can build anything you want but across the road you might only have permission for 20 floors or so.

I was thinking the same thing but when the supertalls are filled and people have to commute, the roads will have alot to deal with.
